Printing dryer belts

ZimmerDollfus & Muller is supplying conveyor belts for rotary, flat and inkjet printing dryers as well as felts for transfer printing.

The Dollfus & Muller conveyor belts also called net, Nomex belt, conveyors or aprons, are used to carry the fabric through the printing dryers. The fabric, which has been printed, is fixed inside dryer with hot air.

The dryer belts need to be very resistant as the running conditions can be tough :

  • Speeds range from 10 to more than 100 meters/min.
  • Temperatures which may be as high as 230°C (450°F).
  • Chemical resistance against the dyestuffs and the auxiliaries,
  • as well as resistance against the abrasion created by the rolls inside the dryers and occasionally due to bad guiding.

 

Nomex belts (aramid), PTFE-coated fibreglass belts, PTFE belts, Kevlar belts, polyester belts, Ryton belts, PEEK belts are available for textile printing dryers, Dollfus & Muller has worldwide, the widest range of dryer conveyors.

 

Dollfus & Muller open mesh conveyor belts allow an optimal drying and are of high dimensional stability specialy for the wider width. Specific dryer belt constructions have been developed to avoid any fabric marking (non marking dryer belts) for very sensitive fabrics such as flag printing or silk printing. As well, Dollfus & Muller has the strongest dryer belts available in order to be long lasting even with very old printing machines.


These printing dryer belts are used on the following textile printing machines : Zimmer, SPGPrints, Efi Reggiani, Buser, Harish, Ichinose, Kuil, Laxmi, Aztec, Hocen, Austromaquinas, Stovec, Meccanotessile, …
